Hello 2016

Hello 2016

My ankles are huge. HUGE. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s like my calves just melted all the way down my legs and pooled around my ankle bones. I guess that’s what 33 hours of flying will do to you. On that note, happy 2016 everyone! I hope you all had a great festive […]

Six Great South African Bubblies for NYE
